Linda has worked with several of our family members with real estate transactions, so she was a natural choice for us. She helped us to find and purchase our new home last fall. We were moving to the Twin Cities area from out of state, and we had a long list of "necessities" for our potential new home. It was a tough time to purchase a house as the inventory was very, very low, and prices were quite high. Linda was an absolute life-saver, her market and community expertise is unparalleled. She understood what were were looking for and when it came time to negotiate contracts, she was very knowledgeable and extremely dedicated. I was impressed with her tireless work ethic. We are extremely happy with our new home -- it's perfect and we couldn't be happier. Linda will always be our first choice when we have to buy or sell real estate.
My partner and I just bought our first home, and we couldn’t have done it without Linda! We had not yet moved to the Twin Cities when we started looking for houses there, and she went out of her way to give us virtual tours plus she devoted a lot of time in her schedule to show us in person when we came to visit. She was respectful of our decisions in what we wanted in a home, always had prompt answers to our questions, and helped us find just the right fit. Basically, Linda is amazing: a true professional with an abundance of knowledge about real estate who also brings a fun, laid-back personality that is so nice to work with!
My husband and I bought our first home with Linda. We were worried about understanding the process and finding a house within our budget. Linda took all the stress away and made the process seamless! She kept us in the loop the entire process without providing an overwhelming amount of details. We are very happy with the home we found. Linda was always responsive and great at working with our schedules. I would use her again!
Linda is amazing! She was able to sell our house which had been on the market by another realtor for over a year. She analyzed the market well and was very creative and resourceful in marketing our home. Linda takes her job seriously and goes the extra mile for you. She helped manage our home since we were not living there and
followed up with all leads keeping us well informed throughout the process. Linda is someone you want on your team. Give her a call!
We had the guidance of Wonder Woman, Linda Smaby, through the sale of my parents' home. She expertly guided us from pre-sale preparation, through pricing, listing, staging, all the way through negotiations and closing! Linda exhibits professionalism, knowledge, calm in the storm and confidence throughout every aspect of the process. She gives you 1,000%, going far beyond normal expectations. Having been through ten real estate sales personally, I can honestly say that Linda is fantastic! Linda demonstrated extraordinary patience in accommodating multiple family members (with diverse personalities & opinions) through the sale of the home that had been in the family through 4 generations. She remained flexible, cool-headed and accomodating when unique circumstances arose. Her communications skills are exemplary - timely and thorough updates via phone, email, fax, text. She responded with immediate referrals to relevant resources for answers to questions every step of the way.
Anyone can give their realtor a glowing recommendation during "good times," when their property sold near the asking price and there were no problems. Unfortunately, that was not the case with our home. It is in this situation that you see the true colors of the realtor and the value (or lack of value) they bring to you. Linda Smaby brought incredible value to us during our 1+ difficult year of selling our Edina home. Her multi-faceted talents were invaluable to us as she navigated us through pricing, finding the right niche market, negotiating the offer, and even a painful and lengthy inspection process. She was always the voice of reason and logic; she was there to provide not an answer, but options as well as the pros and cons of each of the options she offered. Another quality that I greatly appreciated in working with Linda is that she valued our opinions and insight and did not simply discount them just because we were not real estate professionals.
